Have you been waiting for some classic kaiju smashing action? Didn’t get your fill from Pacific Rim 2 or Rampage? If so, you will have to wait a few extra months for “The King of All Monsters” to return to the silver screen, as Warner Brothers Pictures has just moved Godzilla 2 from March to May 2019.
Although other news outlets have reported that this may be a move that was motivated by the studios confidence with the film, it is more likely about avoiding other “monster films”. Godzilla 2’s original release date was March 22, which seemed like a good idea at the time as it avoided the bulk of the summer blockbusters and followed the pattern of last year’s Kong: Skull Island which also debuted in March.
